Outdoor Copycat Vignette

July 29, 2012
Don't you love Debbiedoo's Copycat parties? It's a challenge, but a fun challenge.

I have been searching for a magazine or blog inspiration to copy with not much luck, when our local newspaper arrived last week with this "Simply North" magazine insert.

It had this easy outdoor vignette with two wine bottles and solar yard lights, a piece of driftwood, a rock, and a horseshoe.

This is my version:

I situated my vignette on a tray.

My driftwood was much smaller than my inspiration photo but I think more interesting. It has been sitting in my flower garden for years.

My rock is actually a fossil. See the imprint in the top.

Here is my copycat vignette lit up at night.

I played around on Picasa with these photos and came up with a sepia version that I liked even better.

That's my copycat challenge entry!

Thanks for reading my blog, Carlene

  1. Oh I love the sepia version. I also like the idea of putting the solar lights in bottles!!

  2. Super clever. I love this idea and adding it to a tray is wonderful. Great copy. Hugs, Marty

  3. What a great idea.
    I have heard of using the solar lights whe you have a power outage. To bring them inside at night or lights. When you loose power for days like we do......putting them in the bottles would make them even better.

  4. Those are really beautiful! I made some solar light jars this week. Never thought about using wine bottles! Great project!

  5. Oh my gosh...genius! I am pinning this one! Thanks! :-)
